WMA Rating


#1

Anyone know the placeholder for the WMA Rating metadata field? To get a column appear in the file list?

Not %rating% or %_rating% , for sure :frowning:

Thanks.


#2

It's

%rating%

but IIRC WMP doesn't store the rating information in the tags but in its internal database. There is a powertoy to transfer the ratings to the tags (but I'm not 100% sure).


#3

When I rate a wma file, a field WM/SharedUserRating is created inside the file, but it's not shown in Mp3tag.


#4

Ah okay. This field was probably added after WMP9.

I'll have a look at it when I find some time.


#5

%rating%

Thanks, but doesn't work here (v2.35a) - such a column shows blank both on an WMA which has had its rating stored with the powertoy (and confirmed by viewing the file) and on an MP3. Attempting to enter a rating value causes on WMA an error, and on MP3 no effect AFAICT.

.>>WM/SharedUserRating

This field was probably added after WMP9.

Certainly it is created by the WMA9 rating powertoy


#6

on MP3 no effect AFAICT.

Scratch that - it does work on MP3. Just not on WMA.
